This restaurant was across the parking lot from our hotel. The staff were friendly and the service was quick. Our breakfasts were perfectly prepared and coffee made well. No complaints on our experience.

As hotel was next door, we visited both mornings we were there. Staff very welcoming and open to questions about menu. They serve 3 meals a day. Prices were reasonable for the superb food we received. Loved the biscuits/gravy, eggs, link sausage, French toast.
